Dark Chocolate & Orange ... A Decadent Combination

Do you recall those chocolate covered candy oranges that appear in Easter Baskets or even Christmas stockings? Oh how I love that combination. I thought I would try some cookies with a similar idea. I think next time I will add even more orange flavoring but it was good just the same.

Soft Orange Marmalade Cookies

1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup orange marmalade

1/2 -1 t orange extract
4 cups flour
2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 (12 oz bag) dark chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add sour cream, orange marmalade and orange extract. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add slowly just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

Scoop onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes until lightly golden brown.
